A pleasant Surprise

Every year on our wedding anniversary, my hubby sends me a dozen long-stemmed red roses. But last year I opted for something different to break the tradition. Well, that didn't go well as I hoped, as I missed those gorgeous deep red roses. The other day our receptionist called and told me there was a delivery for me. I was hesitant at first as I wasn't really expecting anything as I haven't done any shopping online. I thought it was a mistake. But to my surprise my husband sent me these beautiful red roses.  It truly made my day, even my whole week so much better.

Hope you are all having a fabulous week.

I'm joining Sandi @ Rose Chintz Cottage for a Christmas in July Tea party

                            I'm using my Robert Gordon Rambling white rose tea pot as a vase.

 I took a picture of my hyacinths this afternoon....I love the staggered flowering so they won't all come and go at the same time. I can enjoy them longer.

                                              The same goes with these daffodils.

                            This is one of my favourite tea pots by Franz

                              Inspired by Van Gogh's Almond Blossoms

It's meticulously handcrafted and polished with soft spring colours. The 3D effect makes it a unique piece of art. More tea anyone?


  1. Hello, friend! Well, your hubby is a very nice flower man! I hope your anniversary celebration was lovely!

  2. Oh, and I LOVE the teapot!

  3. Hi Aida,

    Happy Anniversary! Gorgeous roses, hope you enjoy them for a long time. And that teapot...I have never seen anything so artistic in the land of teapots! It must be so special to have it as part of your setting, which, by the way is very pretty. Love that red check tablecloth!

    Happy Thursday, my friend!


  4. Oh, the red roses are so beautiful! How nice of your husband to send them to you every anniversary. The white rose tea pot is pretty too. Your blog is filled with simplicity and beauty. I really like it.

    Happy Anniversary.
